|Snowy Pawnee Lane In Mount Vernon Washington|
Including a drive by of where I lived before moving to Texas.
I am not understanding how the Douglas Fir that is to the left of the carport has grown so big. It was nowhere near this tall when I moved.
I actually don't even remember a Douglas Fir tree being in that location. Had you asked me I would have said it was several Alder trees.
A month prior to the move a bad windstorm knocked down several trees, including a pair of Alder by where that tall Douglas Fir stands.
Having your house sit under really tall trees and having a lot of windows makes for an interesting scene when the wind gets blowing hard.
Or when there is an earthquake.
Tall trees sway very strangely in an earthquake.
I can see some remodeling has taken place. A different entry door on the second level. The open carport now has a garage door. The stairs from the second floor have been rebuilt with what looks like a landing halfway down. It looks like the windows have been replaced.
I miss this house. Everything about it worked well. It required no air-conditioning, not that many homes in Western Washington have air-conditioning, but this house was designed to passively stay cool.
I like a house that is designed to passively stay cool, since that matches my own personal design. I always stay passively cool.
I wonder what snow pictures my nephew and Spencer Jack will be sending me tomorrow?
